  • Yes just make sure it is not too hot or cold. Hot bath could elevate the temp and cold could also elevate the temp. You might think of doing a sponge bath as well.

  • I would do a sponge bath as well, so hard when the little ones are ill.

  • A warm bath might feel very comforting for the little one. Make sure the room is plenty warm so he won't get chilled.
